I hope this doesn't become too popular.  I see WDFW requiring a tag if it does and later it breaking down into either an east side or west side tag.

I'm not sure this thread belongs here...What fly season is it?  I heard Horse flies weren't opening this year even though they had a great hatch:(

Maybe bigger kosher salt could be your hornet and wasp ammo.

Glad to see yours actually works.  I was part of the original gofundme for them, mine never worked well.  fly would not even move half the time and just fly off.  Mine def did not have the power yours shows.  I might have to get the new version.

I have had one for a couple years...entertaining for sure.  Even dropped this B and C (Bug n Crickett) record dragon fly with it... 3 shots to dispatch the beast.

And as soon as "management" kicks in the population will plummet. Could be looking at Endangerd Species listing in the near future if there's not a statewide initiative to stop the hunting first.

Ok, I just canít keep from wondering..... asking for a friend...... if a guy took it apart and stretched the spring, would that make it legal (Powerful) for wasps and / or hornets?
